ALPINE, TX -- (CBS7) -- Early Friday morning, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent came across human remains in the Sunny Glen Canyon area just north west of Alpine.
Although the Brewster County Sheriff’s Office says it will be days before they can positively identify the remains, one person is confident she knows who was lying in that shallow grave.
Lori Verk believes it’s her daughter Zuzu Verk.
In an exclusive interview, CBS 7 News sat down with the missing Alpine student’s mother [who is] now looking for justice.
When Alpine Police Chief Russell Scown knocked on Lori’s door early Friday morning one thought came to her mind:
“Thank God, thank God, let it be over.”
